If you have only completed part of this qualification we may be able to consider you for a partial award of the credit shown above. If you can provide evidence that you have completed a whole component of the qualification at the higher education level, such as a complete year, semester or module and that you were successful in completing the assessment of this part of the qualification (e.g. end of module examination).

You will need to provide particular evidence in order for us to award credit transfer for a partly completed overseas qualification.
